It's National Doughnut Day, and You Doughn't Want to Miss These 4 Tasty Treats
Today is about to become your new favorite "holiday," because it's National Doughnut Day. Even though we associate the sweet treats with jelly or lots of powdered sugar, they can take on the flavors of any dessert. Stuffed with cream, they become Boston Cream Pie doughnuts, while after being coated with cinnamon sugar, they taste like churros. You can even stack some with frosting to make an Icebox Doughnut Birthday Cake.
Take a walk on the wild side with some of our favorite delicious combinations below — even a savory chicken-and-waffles one — and for even more crazy confections, check out Donut Showdown Thursdays at 9pm ET.
